About Karyn

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey Tucson, do you stress out who will take care of your older dog or greyhound when you leave town? Stress no more. A Tucson Tail specializes in providing TLC for your dog while you’re away.

Because I live with and am loved by two senior greyhounds, I request that your dog weigh a minimum of 25 pounds and be at least 3 years old. Older more calmer dogs who get along with other dogs work best in this household. For new guests, a meet-and-greet is required.

Your dog receives 1-to-1 attention. An average day includes: morning walk, lounging on soft beds, feeding, playtime in a fenced-in yard, occasional treats (made in the USA), pampering & some grooming (brushing, paw balm massage). No extra charge for medications, if applicable.

I’m hands-on, mostly-retired. Pickup/drop-off flexible; will transport/extra fee.

While I have been a greyhound adopter since 1998, other dog breeds are most welcome. I am active in the local pet rescue community and fund-raise for animal charities under Beading Divas to the Rescue.

Upon request, I give 10% donation back to the animal charity of your choice for a minimum of 7/nights or longer stays.

Dogs make the world go around. I'm looking forward to meeting your 4-legged friend.

Harley was happy with Karyn and her pups and, of course, that made me happy!
My dog Franklin seemed to have had a wonderful time. I got sent pictures of him and notifications on what was going on. Karyn even went through the trouble to ask is my dog is afraid of fireworks so she may give him a homeopathic calming remedy. I will be using her services again in the future.
My dog came home healthy and relaxed after his stay at Karyn's place. Sleeping on a sofa is so much better than a kennel floor!
